Hello everyone,

Haven't been here in ages but just wanted to drop a line and say hello.  Saw ben a couple nights ago in philly.

Wanted to note a couple things--
The song he opened with was the original "Ain't Got No Words" which he's clearly been kicking around for probably a decade-- you can hear the original version here: http://www.mp3too.com/download/22703-207166-aint-got-no-words-mp3.html\

The other new songs sound pretty good, "Long Way To Go" being my favorite aside from "Ain't Got No Words" which I should now mention is now called "So There" according to that webiste.

Full Setlist is here:

Didn't stay to meet Ben, part of me wanted to but it was really crowded and I've already interviewed him on the phone once.

Over and out.

Yes, solo. First time I've seen it live I think? Also I just realized "long way to go" was the end of fake "way to normal"... Another reused idea.

I think it'll take me a few listens of "Long Way To Go" off the new album before I can take it seriously, always hearing it book-ending such a ridiculous song.  :D
